Large estate management and care differ significantly from traditional residential landscaping. The scale of estate property management presents unique challenges. The properties are larger which increases the scope of work, but also, irrigation on such a large scale landscape, which can include large water features, valuable trees and plants, and an extremely variable layout, requires specialized design and installation. This system could even require extensive drainage systems. Pest management also has to be carefully planned and managed to be effective and also protect vulnerable plant and animal species. The key to having a successful estate landscape management project is to have a specific overall and focused approach for care and maintenance.
